No Doubt settle video game suit

No Doubt have settled a lawsuit against gaming giant Activision over the use of the band's likenesses in the video game Band Hero

No Doubt have settled their lawsuit against gaming giant Activision over the use of the band's likenesses in the video game Band Hero.

The Grammy-winning band reached a settlement on Monday, court papers showed.

No Doubt sued over a feature in the game that allowed players to perform other artists' songs using the likenesses of singer Gwen Stefani and other band members.

Activision Publishing had denied all wrongdoing. A judge ruled earlier this year that No Doubt could argue fraud, violation of publicity rights and breach of contract claims at a trial scheduled for October 15.

The band's 2009 lawsuit claimed the game turned them "into a virtual karaoke circus act".

Fortunately, you have the necessary resources to bail them out.More
